This is card is in pretty good shape.  I'm not sure if the reptile skin pattern and rainbow coloring in the background is intentional, or some weird result of aging, but the card is otherwise fine.  Sure there's a blue pen mark running across the back, but it doesn't cover up anything important, it just livens up some dead space.  I really like the cards of pitchers showing off a grip on the ball.  You can't tell me this wouldn't make for an interesting Kershaw card today.  In fact, how about a heritage set where every picture is a recreation of it's corresponding card from the original set?
